Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a thriving liberal religious community of close to 150 members. We work and play together to meet our individual and group needs - be they spiritual, intellectual, or social. We welcome all who seek a religious home, free of creeds and based on love, reason, and conscience. We first met over 60 years ago as a small lay-led fellowship and have grown with the help of strong leadership - both lay and ministerial - to a dynamic fellowship serving Humboldt County and the Northern coast of California. We invite you to browse through our website to learn more about our Sunday services, our programs, social action activities, and religious education.
In keeping with our committment to social justice and the inherent worth and dignity of all people, Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship declares its support for the Unitarian Universalist Declaration of Conscience and the New Sanctuary Movement.

Sunday, April 2 – 9 a.m. & 11 a.m. Tightening the Weave of Community: Lead With Love – Melanie De More. Singer, songwriter, composer, conductor and vocal activist Melanie DeMore uses the power of song as an agent of social and political change. She believes in the power of voices raised together, and we will do just that to heal our hearts and spirits in these troubled times. For as she says, “A song can hold you up when there seems no ground beneath you.”
DeMore is one of the most outstanding vocal artists of today helping to preserve African American folk tradition. A sought-after presenter, conductor and soloist, she is adjunct faculty at the California Institute for Integral Studies, Master Teaching Artist for CalPerformances at Berkeley and a featured presenter for SpeakOut! the Institute for Social and Cultural Change.
Sunday, April 9 - 9 a.m. & 11 a.m. Disability as a Deep Desire and Spiritual Strength – Alex Bland. Unitarian Universalist moral principles call us to affirm and promote “the inherent worth and dignity of every person.” As this is true of all faith communities, the neurodiversity movement within the disability community reminds us that the uniqueness seen in every human brain is more like an ecosystem that should be nurtured and where many plants may sprout, than a piece of hardware in mortal danger of malfunction. As UUs, how can we counter oppression rooted in the ways we have been taught to encounter disability?
Sunday, April 16 - 9 a.m. & 11 a.m. Ressurections We Have Known – Reverend Bryan Jessup. On this Easter Sunday, we will think about birth, death and the cycles of nature. We will take a look at the archetype of resurrection in human thought and will ask what it might mean for us today.
Sunday, April 23 - 9 a.m. & 11 a.m. Standing Rock and Other Stories – David Feral. many supporters at Standing Rock. From their struggle we are reminded that “Water is Life.” We are reminded that we human beings did not create the web of life, but are just a small part of it. We are reminded that we have a great responsibility to live simply so that many other life forms and we ourselves can simply live.
Sunday, April 30 - 9 a.m. & 11 a.m. “White Supremacy” and a Big Cultural Change – Around the world, our country and religious association (the UUA) we are in the midst of a huge cultural change. To affirm and promote the worth and dignity of every person and to work for justice, equity and compassion in the world around us calls us to look at how our world view has been formed by “white supremacy” and how we might move beyond it. That work is sometimes painful. But the rewards of deeper harmony between people and greater liberty and justice for all are worth the effort – Rev. Bryan Jessup, Rev. Jamila Tharp and JoAnn Huffman Ph.D.
